what happened, but there are aa lot of intricacies to this story. first give me the general overview generally peaking ofinf these types of matters when thee government steps in and is is certificates national security and issues subpoenas and the ane like and tries to get phone phoe records and that like of thing g because they have done it before. >> it's a balancing test asas walter pink has pointed out in his article. what is different is we have an unfettered press.pres and we're drink from any other country in the world. we are different. di we don't have government regulations. what you get subpoenas like youu got in the ap case, it raises a red flag of the government interfering. but it's a balancing act. act. the obama administration seemsis to be more willing to subpoena reporters to go after leakers lk
and in fact, have prosecuted more leakers than all the the previous administrations and and combined. that is alarming. alarmin it's not to say that it's not's legal to do it. it certainly it.rtainly the justice department hasdepatm strict rules on when at the can subpoena journalists. it's unclear how carefully theyy were followed in this case. i think most journalist wouldisl say certainly we ought to consider national security implications. it's perfectly fine for the the government to ask us not toto print something. some we should listen to that discussion, but at the end of the day, it should be our decision. as you get more and more more subpoenas there's a chilling effect and an ti intimidatingint effect whether the administration intends it orn i not. >> is intimidating effect on the press or the people who may taly to the press.pres >> in the most sense it's the people who might leak or might t be our sources, but that ends up be an imdation to journalist. first of all you can't get
sources to talk to you.k to if you get subpoenaed for your sources you have to make a decision. do i go to jail. go to j it's a real possibility.po many journalists have gone to jail.jail. when you promise someone confidentiality, are you willing to go to jail, because you may m have to. to. >> with this particular case,are it's worth pointing out that thh government did say to thethe associated press, look, if you y print this story, you're going to risk some lives, and in fact, they did hold the story for for several days. in this balancing act, is that significant, and is that the, a responsible for thing for a new organization to do? do? >> think clearly it is, and i, i think it happens more than you realize. it's not unusual for the administration to meet with aa publication and most rep table publication would let theion woe administration know we'rere planning this story to give thei a chance to make their case. at the at issue at the end of t the day who makes that decision, because just as the media as as
walter pin points out, first amendment, the administration ar screams national security secu national security. the administration claims thisih will harm national security.cur. the press didn't believe that bi and ultimately the supreme court of the united states did notst believe that.lieve when do you believe the administration, when do you make your own decision. thets a judgment call. that's a judgment call. it may be in fact, that perhaps ap should not have run thethe story. but the story is how broad the e subpoenas were and how broad the administration has used them. you look at that content and not just this story. >> one thing i haven't heard in the discussion of all of this, and i wonder if it's an underlying issue.un we taldek about the responsiblep press and most of the press is i responsible, but we have sperred a new era in terms of what is considered journalism and now nw anybody who can type on a
keyboard and has a cell phone camera can sometimes bebe considered a journalist. we hear them referred to as citizen journalist is on cable networks. sometimes those individuals, non all of them, may not have the responsibility part down, mightt not have someone else to talk to and the newspapers, big news organizations it's different.io is there some fear that we mighh go down a slippery slope ande that individuals will decide,de, may, i found out this information, i'm putting it out? >> certainly there is. in the wikileak case there's ann issue of whether julian hassan is a journalist. i don't think that he is. the issue of who is a journalist is the most difficult issue sue facing the press. i think we learned over the past year or so.year it's not just about those peoplp who make mistakes and may not be responsible. the boston bombing case showedsd that mainstream media can make mistakes in the 24-7 atmosphere.
i think you're right to beou'reh concerned about that. i think more likely you will wil find main extreme press will be getting the leaks, but clearly it can happen with others. other we do need to be responsible ats the end of the day i wouldday id argue, i'm going to place my bets with the media given thevee first amendment to ultimately make the responsible decision. >> it's a complicated issue.ed u i'm sure we're going to hear her more about it in the days aheadh we thank you for coming in andmn talk about.t. diane huffman distinguished lecturer journalist at university of maryland. stay with us.
